US Presidential Election Fallout

For months, President Donald Trump’s message to his supporters was clear: The election was being stolen from him, and they needed to fight to take it back.

So on Jan. 6, during a Trump-promoted rally to “Stop the Steal,” thousands laid siege to the U.S. Capitol in a stunning attempt to do just that. The fallout of their failed insurrection, which resulted in five deaths, was swift: Trump was deplatformed from nearly every major social network and, on Wednesday, impeached for a historic second time.

When he emerged on camera a short while later, tail tucked between his legs, to condemn the rioters whom he himself had incited, and to call for a peaceful transfer of power to President-elect Joe Biden, his base felt betrayed.

“So he basically just sold out the patriots who got rounded up for him,” one person wrote in a 15,000-member pro-Trump Telegram group. “Just wow.”

In online havens for MAGA extremists, including Gab, CloutHub, MeWe, Telegram and far-right message boards such as 8kun, the tone toward Trump is shifting. HuffPost reviewed thousands of messages across these platforms and found that a growing minority of the president’s once-devout backers are now denouncing him and rejecting his recent pleas for peace. Some have called for his arrest or execution, labeling him a “traitor” and a “coward.” Alarmingly, many of those who are irate about Biden’s supposed electoral theft are still plotting to forcibly prevent him from taking office — with or without Trump’s help.

“We don’t follow you,” another Telegram user wrote, addressing Trump, after the president put out his video urging calm and order. “Be quiet and get out of our way.”

It has become apparent that now — after his mass radicalization campaign of voter-fraud disinformation and conspiracy-mongering — even Trump can’t stop the dangerous delusion he’s instilled across the country, or the next wave of violence it may soon bring...

Obama pardoned a huge number of individuals. The number of pardons granted by Trump has been relatively small, limited to high profile people like General Flynn and Roger Stone. Under the Constitution the people who committed the crime in the 2016 election such as Comey, Clapper, Brennan were all pardoned, so were untouchable in law. During the 2018 midterms a trap was set to observe the fraud, which this time with the help of Space Force was observed from a SCIF the entire time. Satellite connections manipulated the voting through a Frankfurt CIA server farm, then when that wasn't enough the Vatican took over. There are 50,000 affidavits ready to go detailing the fraud.

Hasn`t happened.

Leonardo - Renzi - Obama. About to break...

Hasn`t happened.

 

The watermarks on the ballots hasn`t happened.

The Boom(s) hasn`t (haven`t) happened.

 

I`m noticing a theme.

This bloke here is Sec Defence Miller, now believed to be one of the 12 Horsemen who went into Afghanistan and subdued 50,000 Taliban in 2001.

So can anyone actually tell me what this post is supposed to mean.Not the 12 horsemen bit but the reason why someone would post a picture of Miller and say that it is a picture of Miller and no further explanation.

Is it his idol ?

Is there some secret code in the metadata of that photo that announces when the revolution will begin or something ?

Does he wank to the picture or something ?

I think ol' Georgie Dubya put it best when he said "There's an old saying in Tennessee—I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee—that says, 'Fool me once, shame on... shame on you. Fool me—you can't get fooled again."

Image may contain: text that says "Texas Sheriff's Deputies 1h・ So, the same people that tell you that we don't need guns or walls,, have surrounded themselves with guns and walls,, for the same reason they said we don't need them.... you can't make this shit up... ~Ghost"

Funny to think they missed the point where they seem so much more dangerous than all those Mexicans that the authorities feel a wall is needed.

I'd hazard a guess that he will pretend that those specific theories never existed, and just post more new ones instead

Wow. At $20.000 a day thats a humengous lot of lawyering.

 

Surprised (not really) they didn't turn up anywhere except Phantasieland. 

Doesn't the "fat lady" sing in around 24hrs - signalling that it's all over??

Welp, the Mods and most TT members tolerated and even embraced 358 pages of conspiracy theory before finally euthanizing it.    TTers love conspiracy theories and enthusiastically greened one unsubstantiated rumor after another posted by luminaries like AlexTr and El Jeffo.    🤡

Russia! Russia! Russia!  🤪

Amazing that this coward who is so fragile that he can't attend his successor's inauguration (a slap in the face to America itself) has so many supporters. They will miss it being "ok" to be openly racist, homophobic, misogynist and anti-Semitic I guess. There aren't good and bad on both sides.
